Little girls should be seen and not heard…
This February, Rally & Broad is celebrating all things smashy smashy, throwing off the ties that bind and the chains that weigh us down. Everyone, everywhere, rise up and get down. No nonsense now, let’s boogie…
Joining us for the revolution are…
Poet, performer and author of acclaimed memoir Springfield Road, Godden is a UK spoken word powerhouse whose writing is “urgent and detailed; colourful and clamorous.” (The Times)
KIRSTY LAW & BAND!
With songs from new album Shift, Scots singer-songwriter Kirsty Law and her band (Rona Wilkie & Marit Falt) are a captivating live act. “’Beautiful and feisty… it’s a joy to hear a young singer and writer in Scots with such earthy and conversational character to her singing and songs… a young musician doing things her own way’ (Karine Polwart)
Founder of Rebel Inc, and co-producer of Neu Reekie, Williamson is a poet, author, publisher and cultural activist whose previous works include Drugs and The Party Line and In A Room Darkened.
A former Scottish Slam Champion and writer of witty, poignant verse, Hawley is a regularly performing poet in Edinburgh and programmer of the TriColour poetry events at the National Library of Scotland.
… and LIZ CRONIN!
Liz Cronin’s darkly comic and kidding-on-the-square lyrical content is known for eliciting a range of emotional responses from her audience. In Rally & Broad’s case, the emotional response is sheer awe. We love her, and we’re delighted to have back to the stage.
Phew. See you at the front? Ours is a sledgehammer, and a bag of salt and vinegar.
